ISO 9001

PRINCIPLES OF CERTIFICATION ACCORDING TO ISO 9001

The internationally applicable standard ISO 9001 has been created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), whose goal is to define international requirements for a quality management system. Besides ISO 9001:2008, it is now also possible to use its amended version ISO 9001:2015. The certificate issued by an independent accredited certification authority guarantees that a quality management system is implemented, documented and used in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001.

REVISION OF ISO 9001

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has completed a revision of the ISO 9001 standard. The new version of ISO 9001:2015 was released on 15 September 2015 and a three-year transition period has been provided for implementing the standard in companies, i.e. the standard should be implemented by 15 September 2018.

The standard was translated and issued in February 2016. The technical standard ČSN EN ISO 9001:2016 came into effect on 1 March 2016. ITC has already started the certification of a management system at customers according to the standard ISO 9001:2015/ČSN EN ISO 9001:2016.

The certification and recertification of management systems according to ISO 9001:2008 will take place until the end of August 2017. Considering that the certificates issued according to the standard ISO 9001:2008 have a limited validity until 15 September 2018, we recommend that all the parties interested in certification and recertification perform an audit already according to the standards ISO 9001:2015/ČSN EN ISO 9001:2016.

MAJOR REVISIONS OF ISO 9001 STANDARD

  • simplification of documentation
  • the new structure of the standard allows for easy interconnection with the requirements for the environment, work safety or information security
  • greater demands placed on consideration of potential risks
  • greater emphasis on the alignment of goals and results of companies/firms, especially from a long-term viewpoint
  • more emphasis placed on customer satisfaction
  • involving the organization’s management and making sure the organization understands the surrounding business environment

BENEFITS OF CERTIFICATION

  • stabilization of the achieved quality level in the range of products and services
  • higher sales revenues thanks to effectively configured processes
  • increased credibility of the company with the customers and other business partners
  • the possibility of attracting new customers thanks to providing high-quality production
  • introducing order and rules to all activities within the company
  • the possibility of the subsequent backchecking of compliance with the defined rules in the quality system
  • avoiding potential nonconformities and defects through the adoption of preventive measures

CERTIFICATION PROCESS

The basic phases of the certification process are as follows:

  • implementing the QMS into practice
  • preparing the documentation
  • certification by an accredited certification authority
    • assessing and registering the client’s request for certification
    • entering into a contract on the performance of a certification audit (certification audit takes place in two stages)
    • setting up a team of auditors
    • preparing a plan of the audit
    • checking the facts in stages:
      a) reviewing the client’s documentation
      b) checking the facts on site
    • drawing up a report on the result of the certification audit
    • assessment of the audit report by the certification authority
    • issuing the certificate
  • supervisory audit
    • o during the three-year validity period of the certificate, a supervisory audit is performed once a year in the first and second year. Following up on the result of the supervision, a decision will be issued on the confirmation of the validity of the certificate until the next supervision or a decision will be issued on suspending the validity of the certificate. In case of significant deviations from the requirements of the standards, it is possible – as a last resort – to revoke the certificate
  • recertification audit
    • To ensure continuous validity of certification, a recertification audit should take place based on the certificate holder’s decision in the third year before expiration of the certificate’s validity.
